Jim Skafish doing an encore
A Skafish encore

In January, Skafish gives a lengthy radio interview discussing his history on Chicago’s “Z-95” station.

Polygram Records’ Billy Cox, a Skafish fan, directs Skafish to discussions with the legendary Smash Records, now a Polygram affiliate.  Smash Records, which had been reborn in Chicago, considers signing Skafish to a deal after hearing the new Skafish dance track “Animal,” but ultimately passes on the project.

Throughout the year, Skafish continues to work the solo show around the Chicago area, often playing 3-4 long sets per night plus encores.  He is still receiving local press, but is unable to ink a new record deal.
